DAVID PALMER passed away this past week. It is currently unclear what happened to him but he did have some health problems. David loved to be a part of the Canadian River Cruisers. After he joined, he fell right in with the "Gang of Seven", the guys who plan and organize our various cars show. most Saturdays you would find David at the weekly car show, displaying his Corvette, sitting in a lawn chair, nodding off and on.....he really enjoyed hanging out with those 7 guts and became a big part of our car show organization.
David was a United State Navy veteran, serving in a combat role on riverboats in Vietnam. His experience during his service was not a good one and he suffered in the years following his discharge from the military.
Despite what appeared to be his gruff nature, he would do whatever was needed to help, often going beyond what any of us expected. We are posting memories of David on this page. Send them to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post them. We will miss David and wish to extend his daughter and friends our sympathy.
